Plain wanilla muffins

This is basic muffin recipe. Those muffins are like a buns. Soft, fluffy, sweet very tasty when spread with butter and jam or marmalade.  I think they are good option for breakfast or quick snack during a busy day. The recipe comes from this website.

Ingredients for 8-12 muffins:
  • 320g flour
  • 110g sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 250 ml milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 55 g melted butter
Melt the butter and set aside to cool down.
Preheat the oven to 200C. Line muffin tin with paper cases.

Sift the flour, baking powder and soda into a bowl and whisk them together.
In separate bowl with a fork whisk the egg add the sugar and vanilla extract and whisk until fluffy. Pour milk and cooled butter into egg mixture, sift the flour and combine all ingredients together. Do not over stir the mixture.
Spoon the batter into muffin cases 3/4 full. Bake for 20 minutes until well risen and golden. Leave them to cool down on the wire rack.

You can eat them with jam. I served mine with home made raspberry cream.
Ingredients for raspberry cream:
  • 50g soft butter
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 200g soft cheese like Philadelphia or minced cottage cheese for cheesecakes
  • 200g frozen raspberries
Defrost raspberries. Mash them with fork.

In electric mixer bowl whisk the butter and soft cheese until fluffy gently add the sugar. When  ready fold in the raspberries. Enjoy !
